Since tying the knot on Sunday, "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul has been keeping fans in the loop on how much he loves his bride ... and sharing photos from their big day.
The 33-year-old actor, who plays the foul-mouthed-but-big-hearted meth maker Jesse Pinkman on the AMC series, married his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Parsekian, in Malibu, California, on Sunday.

"And so it begins," Paul first tweeted on Friday, along with a photo of the happy couple and the hashtag #mrmrspaul, hinting that the wedding weekend was underway.
The actor and his groomsmen, including co-star Bryan Cranston, wore black tuxes, while the bride donned a Kenneth Pool “Paris” gown by designer Amsale Aberra. The couple threw a 1920s Parisian carnival-themed wedding and guests were asked to show up with masquerade masks. But it wasn't just guests who were required to wear the masks -- the bride and groom did too.
"A day will never go by without me reminding you how special you are," Paul wrote on his Instagram account on Monday, along with a shot of the two in disguise at the wedding. "Thanks for last night my pretty little bird."Prior to the ceremony on Sunday, Parsekian gave the world a sneak peek at her wedding-day look, posting a pic of herself getting her hair done to Instagram, writing, "Wedding time. Did my own make up!"
The event sounded fun-filled for sure, and featured a small ferris wheel, swing ride, and photo booth. As for entertainment, there were stilt walkers, burlesque dancers, fabled magician David Blaine doing tricks, and even a performance by pop star John Mayer, who sang “Daughters” while Parsekian danced with her father.

Paul and Parsekian met at Coachella Arts and Music Festival in Indio, California, in 2010, and became friends. A year later, they returned to the fest and shared their first kiss on a Ferris wheel. "You know when people say, 'When you know, you know? It was crazy," Paul told GQ in 2012. "The moment that happened … I couldn't imagine myself being without her."
On New Year's Eve 2011 they became engaged during a holiday getaway to Paris. Paul later recounted to People magazine how they were outside of a hotel, dancing to Édith Piaf by themselves, when he "begged her" to marry him, noting, "I'm the luckiest man on the planet.It doesn't make sense to me. The way she looks at me ... She has that magical glow about her."
Clearly not shy about expressing his feelings for her, he also openly gushed about his main squeeze during his acceptance speech at the 2012 Emmys, saying, "You truly saved me."
Parsekian, 25, is a film director-producer, but also the co-founder of the nonprofit organization Kind Campaign, which is a movement, documentary, and school program established to eradicate girl-against-girl bullying. As a young girl growing up in Laguna Niguel, California, she was the target of bullying that got so bad, she actually attempted suicide.
These days, Parsekian is probably feeling more love than ever thanks to hubby Paul's non-stop flattery.
"I married my best friend on Sunday and I can't stop staring at her," the actor wrote on Tuesday, when he posted a photo of his gorgeous bride online. "Love you pretty."
